Crochet Velvet Headband With A Twist
Hello everyone! I hope you are well, this week I am bringing to you a project that I absolutely loved crocheting, a crochet velvet headband with a twist.
This project is so easy and quick to make! I made mine in just over an hour, so this is a great pick for Christmas gifts! It is such a feminine and lovely gift to crochet, perfect for this Winter weather too.
The video tutorial for this project can be found on my Youtube channel here: Crochet Velvet Headband with a Twist Video Tutorial
Crochet Velvet Headband With A Twist: the yarn
I used Bernat Velvet bulky yarn in shade Quiet Pink for this project. It is so soft and lovely to crochet with, and gives the most beautiful effect when the project is completed. I love how it just glides through my hands and crochet hook. It has a slight shimmer to it, which makes it even more feminine I think. I love how gorgeous this headband looks once completed.
The twist gives it a really lovely, almost vintage shape, and it is so easy to create! Now that I have made one, I am making lots more too, because it is just so gorgeous.
This yarn comes in a huge 300 g ball, so you only need a tiny bit to create your headband. This means you can crochet lots of headbands, or different projects, with just a ball of this yarn. What’s not to love?
I recently made a simple velvet scrunchie tutorial with this very yarn. You can find the free written pattern, as well as the video tutorial, here: Crochet a velvet scrunchie
Crochet Velvet Headband With A Twist: about the pattern
As I previously mentioned, I love how a simple twist can make a simple headband look so amazing. The simple technique required to create the twist is so easy. I am now in the process of creating more headbands with a twist in them, as I think they look so gorgeous and elegant!
Do you enjoy these simple projects as much as I do? I love creating quick and simple projects, perfect for Christmas presents!
This pattern is created with a simple repeat pattern of half double crochets, which gives a very snugly look to the project. Once all the rows of half crochets are completed, the project is simple folded and the twist created. And voilà, your beautiful and elegant headband is created!

Notes : I will be using US terms (British terms in brackets)
Gauge: 9 HDC= 4 in (10 cm)
7 rows=4 in (10 cm)
Gauge is not crucial for completion of this project
Size of finished project before sewing: 6 in x 21 in (15 cm x 53 cm)
You will need :
-1 skein of Bernat Velvet yarn in shade Quiet Pink (or any other Bulky weight 5 yarn of your preference ; you will need a 100 g of yarn)
A 7 mm crochet hook
A pair of scissors
A tapestry needle
Ch : chain
Sl st : slip stitch
HDC: Half Double crochet (UK Half Treble Crochet)
To start, make a slip knot.
Row 1: HDC in 3rd chain from the hook, HDC into each ch until end of row (first ch 2 counts as a HDC).
Row 2: Ch 2 (=HDC), turn your work, HDC into 2nd HDC from previous row, HDC into each HDC until eor.
Rows 3-10 : Repeat row 2
Fasten off, leaving long tail to sew both ends of project to create ear warmer.
Sew your headband together and create twist :
Place your project flat, and fold in two lengthwise.
Make sure project is neatly folded, then fold the two sides of your project to create a center fold.
Take one side and twist it so that it creates a twist on one side.
Once this is done, take both sides and place them facing you, and slide each side into it’s opposite counterpart, creating a « sandwich » effect.
You now have four layers to stitch together.
With tapestry needle and loose end, sew these layers together securely. You can sew this seam in twice if you wish (I did).
Create a knot once you have finished seaming the project, fasten off and tidy up all loose ends.
Thank you so much for stopping by!
